      Before getting to the river: we should definitely be barreling the turn. Even though his flop calling range includes Ax which he still calls our 2nd barrel, it also includes stuff like 9x, 87, T8, JT.
      He's definitely folding any pair below a K on the turn (unless his a super calling station) and we take down the pot. And when he does have an A, we still have equity. The K is a scare card for a good chunk of his range and therefore we have fold equity by betting it. Remember: fold equity + outs = BET :evil:

      As played: I'm definitely raising the river bigger. If he has some sort of 2P such as AT or T9 or T7, he's calling any raise. If he has something like 86, he's obviously not folding. And i'm pretty sure he doesn't play a weak Ax like this. So I think his range includes some 2P+ hands or some sort of busted hand with no sd value. So basically I don't think your raise size will make a difference in whether he folds or call.

      That said, I'm just potting it ($6). If he's a really loose bad player, I might just shove it in.
